What is Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong?

Qigong is at least 4,000 years old. Throughout history Chinese people believed in the importance of a healthy mind and body, and the ancients explored ways of improving health, wellbeing and longevity. The resulting discoveries of the power of movement, meditation and breathing exercises became known as qigong. Qigong is a cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and many different styles evolved over the centuries. About 1,700 years ago, a priest named Dao An developed Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong. Qigong (sometimes written as chi kung) is pronounced "chee gong." It means "to practice the qi." When practicing Dayan Qigong, the circulation of qi, or life force energy, nourishes, heals and sustains the whole being. Dayan Qigong is a set of 64 flowing movements that represent the daily rituals of the bird. Moving through the entire form takes around 15 minutes. It has been carefully structured to gather, build, distribute, and enhance the flow of qi. Dayan Qigong is a healthcare practice and not a religion.
